Prophet's Rock

http://www.prophetsrock.co.nz/

At Prophet’s Rock, we use traditional methods to make wines that give voice to the vineyards they come from. The name ‘Prophet’s Rock’ is taken from a local landmark at the claim of pioneering goldminer Bob Prophet. It is a name that reflects our new world setting; here, we work on the margins, perched on the edge in the southernmost wine growing region on earth.

Prophet’s Rock produces Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Pinot Gris from our estate vineyards at Bendigo and Rocky Point. Our exceptional vineyards are the foundation of our wines, and we’re fanatical about looking after them. Our journey starts in the vines, where we grow low yielding fruit with great concentration and flavor, fruit we then treat with deference. 

Originally from New Zealand, winemaker Paul Pujol has always been drawn to the Pinot Noirs and aromatic whites of France. He joined Prophet’s Rock after a six-year around the world odyssey chasing these varietals, travels palpable in the wines he makes today.

A complex-style, the engaging bouquet shows apricot, almond, flint, and subtle spice characters.  It’s beautifully rounded on the palate with excellent mid palate weight and silky texture, brilliantly framed by bright acidity.  The wine flows beautifully to a very fine finish.
